People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 8:9


1Co 8:9 Take heed lest . . . this liberty of yours, etc. The meat itself made one neither better nor worse (1Co 8:8), but if those who "had knowledge" (1Co 8:10) ate it, it might prove a stumbling-block, the occasion of the fall of those who were not so well informed and were weaker.
